  • Effectively communicate findings to business partners and executives. Leverage advanced visualization tools to create powerful representations of results.  Enable data-driven insights to be translated into decisions and actions by telling a convincing story.
  • Act as a liaison between the business analysts and the auditors (i.e. communicate audit requirements to system technical staff in order for them to execute the desired tests and produce results
  • Use business domain knowledge to lead the analytics process with business partners to identify requirements and expected outcomes 

What do you need to succeed?
